About Iowa Future
Our yesterday is not their tomorrow.
Why? Because tomorrow will take them to places—real and virtual—we’ve never been. Because tomorrow they will perform jobs that today don’t yet exist. Because tomorrow belongs to them.
Iowa must begin to look ahead to provide what’s best for today’s students, not back at how things used to be.
That is why we need innovation in Iowa education: to help all students realize success, and possess the knowledge and skills so they will be ready for their tomorrow, not our yesterday.
It is the reason for new efforts, such as the Iowa Core, to give each student an education that will best prepare them for what’s next in their lives. And it is the reason to do even more.
Several Iowa education groups have joined together to help Iowans understand the importance of preparing students for tomorrow’s global market. Through this understanding, it is hoped that Iowans will fully support the efforts of educators who are helping to shape the next workforce.
The Iowa Future website is an effort to explain the need for educational innovation and provide videos, discussion guides, presentation templates, testimonials, links to other great resources and more.
